Too Faced Mascaras

A few weeks ago I went to Ulta looking for a new mascara.  They had a special with Too Faced mascara that were 2 mascaras for $19.5o.  I figured it was good deal since it cost that much for a single mascara.  In the packaged came Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara & Too Faced Pin Point Mascara.  Here's what I thought about them:

Too Faced Lash Injection
The Lash Injection mascara comes in a fat tube.  It has a medium length wand with thick bristles.  The mascara is 0.45 fl. oz. and comes in two colors; deep black and hot chocolate (dark brown).  It's waterproof to prevent smudging or smearing but will wash off with soap and water.  It claims to be thickening and give length, and it does do that but doesn't hold a curl too well.  Also if you put more than two or three layers of this mascara your lash will start to clump.  When you use this product you will notice a citrus type of smell.  This was the first time I've ever had a mascara with a scent but I think it's the jojoba & vitamin E that they add to the formula to help condition you lashes.

Pro: Definitely gives you extremely thick & lengthen lashes
Con: Clumps with too many layers
Buy Again: Yes

Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint Mascara
The Pinpoint Mascara uses the same formula as the regular Lash Injection.  The main difference between the two is that the pin point has very short bristles.  They're so short they barely thicker then the wand.  Because they are so short, it helps to separate each lash giving you that volume.  The Pinpoint is also about half the amount as the Lash Injection (0.25 fl. oz.)  Everything else is pretty much the same but doesn't clump as easily as the Lash Injection.

Pro: Gives you volume
Con: None
Buy Again: Yes

FYI:  You can use both of these mascaras together to create dramatic effects.
For False Eyelash Effect:
1. Coat both top & bottom lashes with 1-2 coats of "Lash Injection" mascara.  Using the brush, wiggle from the lash roots to tips.
2. Apply 1-2 coats of "Pinpoint" mascara from the center of the lashes to tips.

For Lash Extension Effect:
1. Coat both top & bottom lashes with 1-2 coats of "Pinpoint" mascara.  Using it's micro-precision brush, wiggle from the lash roots to tip.
2.  Tip lashes with 1-2 coats of "Lash Injection" mascara.  In a feathering motion from center of the lashes, pull wand straight out beyond lash tips for a "stretching" effect.
